Nothing like a little book release to make me completely nuts and insecure and self-doubting and depressed and generally kind of mean and bitchy (just ask my family). The cheery question I get asked most frequently lately is, “Are you excited that your book came out?”
Grateful, yes. Relieved, yes. Excited, not really. Not to sound sour, but it’s the truth. It’s a vulnerable and scary time.
But my spirits were lifted at the Book Soup launch event for Pretty. It was a treat. Sincere thanks to all of you who came out and celebrated with me! I really felt the love. I hope you had as good a time as I did.
Lisa Dee and Juli Crockett of the Evangenitals sang some tunes.
Mr. Shriner was actually in town this time!
With J Ryan Stradal and Stephen Elliott (looking awfully suspect).
Up to no good: Ernest Greene, Robert Cucuzza, Scott Shriner, Steve De Jarnatt and Brian Ray.
Who has a sexier signing line than this? Okay, Duff McKagan is signing next week and he probably will, but not by much…
